Hi, could someone help me get in touch with whoever created this resource? Several of the images, if not most, of the images in the Imperial Russian Army section are stolen directly from my Dad's book (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Russian-Army-1914-18-Men-at-Arms/dp/1841763039/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8). I would imagine it's the similar for the other armies too.
The images themselves were illustrated by a very good friend of his (https://ospreypublishing.com/andrei-karachtchouk). I've tried looking up the company but am not sure I am viewing the correct source. Cheers!
I replaced most of my basic colored tees with Next Level (N6210) tees. They’re fitted at the top, and they hang pretty neutral around the midsection. They’re also fitted around the sleeve, and the material is comfortable.
The best thing about these puppies is that they’re <$10, and typically only fit better the more you wash and dry them (gasp). They’re generally blanks for apparel companies, but amazon has them now and they’re my favorite fitting basic tee.
Hello all, due to the overwhelming whiteness of online fashion, I wanted to create an inspo album of people of color in fashion. This album leans towards both more formal suiting and black people in fashion. I received the book Dandy Lion, which focuses on formal black street style and formed the basis for this album. I made some attempts to find more asian/latinx folks for the album, but due to time constraints I don’t have the time in my schedule to find more. If anyone has any good inspo from non-black PoC, please let me know and I’ll happily add it to the album.
I see the irony of being a white dude and making this album, but no one else has done it yet.
Tumble dry on low and remove them when they're damp. They won't drip everywhere when you hang dry them (racks like this are particularly helpful for tight rooms/apartments). Because they're just damp and not wet, they won't be sag and stretch, but they'll have enough weight to them to keep their shape as they dry.
Just be careful on the Khaki and Olive depending on the material. If they are canvas or chino material then Helllooooo swamp ass.
I have a few pairs of polyester/synthetic blend shorts in navy, black, etc. Those work well in all climates. For higher end I'm sure you could find something from Lulu, Bonobos and the likes. On the lower end TJ Maxx usually has tons of fits of these types of shorts.
Edit: something like these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074KHX3HB/ref=twister_B079H5WNY7
Kirkland (Costco) Brand Mens Trail Sock, 4-pack
MOTHERFUCKER THAT IS $11.99^^^$11.99!!! FOR FOUR PAIRS OF MADE-IN-THE-MOTHER-FUCKING-U-S-OF-FUCKING-A SOCKS THAT WILL KEEP YOUR LOVED ONE`S TOES TOASTY ALL FUCKING WINTER. $3/PAIR!!!!!! YOU LITERALLY CANNOT FUCK THIS ONE UP, MOTHERFUCKER
An easy, /r/SkincareAddiction-approved drugstore source of the routine you describe is: Cetaphil cleanser, red box Stridex for the salicylic acid, and CeraVe moisturizer. Unless OP has very dry skin, the CeraVe sunscreen lotion will be fine and take care of his need for SPF.
Advice: don't get over-the-door ones; they're unstable and will annoy the shit out of you.
IMO, don't get anything smaller than a regular size standing one.
Only get a portable/countertop one if you absolutely don't have space to set up a regular one.
A heat-resistant iron rest is an awesome feature.
.... Just buy this one....
1) wipe them down with a damp rag to get off any surface dirt.
2) if there are salt stains, get a cup of water and mix in some white vinegar. Repeat #1
3) let them dry thoroughly. overnight is preferable
4) go on amazon and get Bick 4 and a Horse hair brush
5) follow directions on Bick 4.
6) Repeat #5 (probably several times)
7 Reevaluate at this point. If it's still not up to par, post on r/goodyearwelt and r/RedWingShoes for further advice.
"The Elements of Style" is a bit grandiose of a title, not to mention an already-famous book. I suggest something more descriptive, something befitting an E-book written by a self-appointed coalition of IRC addicts and sidebar junkies.
North Face Gotham III Jacket - Stylish looking jacket and super warm for the price. It has the north face logo on it fairly front and center, but when it comes to winter coats that's something that's hard to avoid.
Sorel Leather Moc-Toe Waterproof Boot - Designed as a hiking boot, but I've used these boots for 2 years as winter boots and they work amazingly. Depending on your work environment and dress code you could wear these all day without having to change shoes. Paired with some Darn Tough socks or really any good quality wool sock, you'll have no problem staying warm.
Both of these could be just a hair out of your range depending on when & where you buy them, but most of the NF styles are below the $400 mark and the Sorel boots you can likely find a discount code for if you're buying them directly from the site. They do have certain styles below $150 on sale rn as well.
i hate being a dick because starting your own business is very difficult, but this kickstarter is real cringey.
clip on, pre-tied eldridge knot plz make it stop.
If you're looking for no-show socks, I would not (repeat: not) recommend these Osabasa socks on Amazon. I found that the line where the socks are sewn is so thick that it cut off circulation to my toes. My foot size is right in the middle of one of their sock sizes, so I was surprised that the socks were so tight.
I find it unfortunate that Bodega didn’t give more credit to scholar and author W. David Marx (aka Marxy), who wrote the definitive book on Ametora, called... wait for it… Ametora! The article shamelessly rips a lot of its substance from the pages of his amazing book.
Highly recommended reading. Ametora: How Japan Saved American Style https://www.amazon.com/dp/0465059732/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_xHFsCbB3PYVTQ
Edit: more than half way through he gets two mentions, one of which calls his book the Bible of Ametora, so I revised shameful to unfortunate.
So someone posted these on r/sneakers about a month or so ago and I decided to order. They were like $30 on Aliexpress (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32664407619/32664407619.html?shortkey=FV3Qvuei&addresstype=600) and I thought why the hell not… Wearing them for the first time today and here are my thoughts:
Color: They are exactly as represented on the Aliexpress page. Love the red/blue knit mix.
Quality: Look, these are $30 Aliexpress jawnz so my expectations were low. That being said they’re not terrible. The fake flyknit/primeknit material is a little stiff, but might need to be broken in. It’s a lot more flyknit than primeknit. The only real quality thing is that the midsole isn’t completely clean and there are some jagged pieces from the mold. You can see it in the pictures. Probably could take some fine sandpaper and knock that right off tho.
Comfort: Now this is what you are probably all wondering about. And I’m sort of grading on a curve because $30 shoes. But honestly? Not bad. The knit upper is light and nice. When I first got them I was really worried about the sole because it was REALLY stiff/hard. But the insole is actually pretty good (plus I could swap it out if I really wanted to ball out on these) and the sole feels like it’s softening and breaking in. The sole looks A LOT like my Cole Haan lunargrand soles, but don’t have the same bounce. But not bad for $30.
Overall, I like. I might cop the grey or black colors because these are cheap and not terrible. I actually already got a compliment on these red ones. Not bad at all.
I'm known for wearing bright, colorful socks to my office job each day. If you're spending every day dealing with stuffy, judgmental folks who might hamper your progress, then you can always second-guess your sock choice, but I know plenty of successful folks who see their socks as the last bastion for playfulness in an otherwise prim-and-proper wardrobe.
Lots of the socks from Soxy and Happy Socks can be found on Amazon, since lots of those brands are filling out their selection with a bunch of generics made in china. Specifically look for HSELL and Deer Mum.
I really like these, and also these. They're the same exact product as many of the big sock retailers are selling, but for a fraction of the price.
Have you read the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo?
She goes into great depths about the same concept you write about when it comes to tidying up your wardrobe. The entire book can pretty much be summarized as 'TL;DR: Buy things you love and chuck shit you don’t', but its a really good read.
Although it's not a high level brand, it gets the job done especially when replicating the rucksack look. I've had the green canvas version for a year and a half now and it's held up incredibly. This one specifically is lined on the outside, can endure a massive rainstorm without letting any water reach your precious technology, and has a built-in laptop sleeve that fits my 15" laptop (very cozy). There's a couple interior pockets and the side pockets are large enough to fit a mug or water bottle, and it still has some padding for the back. They do have more designs on their site, which is worth a look.
I need a new winter coat. https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/men-warm-tech-down-coat-172994.html is $50 off right now. I can't decide between the black and green. I usually wear dark wash jeans and a t-shirt/button down. Also I know last years model needed to sized down but am not sure about this year's model.
I am also looking at the Alpha Industries Slim Parka on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005BXEQ3I/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&th=1&psc=1. It is a little cheaper at checkout today on Cyber Monday. Torn between Sage and Replica grey for that one.
Ordered them both. Uniqlo has free returns through PayPal and Amazon had free returns on Prime.
Pick up some collar extenders. They're not perfect, but if you wear a thicker knot then they're typically not noticeable. They add about a 1/2 size extension.
Personally I find monk straps to be a more formal shoe, so I wouldn't be wearing them with denim at all -- unless it was a very "smart" pair of jeans. Be careful not to veer into jeans and sheux territory.
ignore the url this is guaranteed to get complements. papa bless
More fits and other shit on my Instagram: @usuallywhatimdressedin
80% of the parts in a US-assembled Toyota Camry are considered "domestic". More than some "American" brands.
I would say that they're pretty similar. The next level shirt might be a bit slimmer. You can buy them on Amazon for about $7 with free shipping, so I would suggest ordering a shirt and seeing how you like it. Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/Next-Level-CVC-Crew-CHARCOAL/dp/B004OWML5C
I use this exact Timex Weekender as my daily watch for college and everything else. Still using the stock strap. It's nice, cheap, and I feel like it goes well with pretty much everything .
Figured I'd give a little input on the t-shirts, I know that target changed where the material of their t-shirts come from and they are not the same quality that we are used to from the past. They are much more thin and I wouldn't recommend them as much as I used to.
You can buy some great shirts from Amazon actually for about the same price.
Palladium makes good lightweight boots. They're my go-to as I'm a skinny motherfucker and they have a slim profile. Their canvas boots are dirt cheap but they make good winter-appropriate leather boots too
I feel like a bit of an asshole writing this but I used to struggle with this a lot and my number one tip, regardless of what you're buying people, is you need to be thinking about this stuff all year, not just in the run-up to the holidays. I've been using this Google sheet from Lifehacker for years at this point. The instant you see something and think "x would like this", no matter how trivial it is, that's a potential gift. Write it down. If your SO/friend/family member starts a sentence with "I wish I had" or "I hope they have", write whatever they say down, even if it's something vague. When the end of the year starts to roll around, you can start eliminating stuff that's too costly or that you've changed your mind on. It can be really easy (by December 1 I usually have 50-75% of my list solidified), but I think the trap is thinking about it as something that only exists in the last 2-3 months of the year.
Costco - Please hear me out... If you are cash strapped and need basic white, colored or pinstriped shirts that are IN EVERY HALF SIZE (i.e. I wear a 16/34 and don't want a 16/16.5 - 34/35), Not a huge selection but they fit well and at $17.95 are a great deal. Just don't let anyone see the Kirkland tag... http://www.costco.com/mens-dress-shirts.html
Amazon Essentials. I haven't worn them much yet, so can't comment on durability. But they fit great and come in a decent range of colors.
Bucket hats. Good god so many bucket hats all the time.
Tie Chain - wear it like this - It's a family heir loom - your papa was a zoot suiter and this is a subtle way to proclaim it to the world.
Protip - learn how to dance.
I literally buy mine in 3 packs off amazon. Polarized and UVA/UVB protection and they're like $5 or $6 each. Have one in my pocket now.
Edit: I've had I think 6 or so of these. Kind of love them. Look good enough and are polarized (the real selling point) and you don't really care if you lose them or scratch them. Good partying glasses.
Alpha Industries makes a parka that fits your description. You can get it cheaper on Amazon.
However, it really is heavyweight, so if your average winter temp is above 0 Celsius you'll probably end up leaving it open most of the time to not overheat. I have one, and have worn it in -18C weather with just a t-shirt under and not been cold.
Jerzees Men's Adult Long Sleeve Tee, Athletic Heather, Large https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00T7TY2FE?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf So far these are the best I have found on amazon. This fit is above average but not AMAZING. Willing to try out the other brands mentioned here as well
A good haircut might be the best cost/benefit ratios.
There are posture fixers on amazon for like $20 which can help. Just wear it like 20 minutes a day i believe https://www.amazon.com/Posture-Corrector-Men-Women-Truweo/dp/B07DKHTKP3/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=back+straightener&qid=1600190031&sr=8-3
Somehow winter hasn't hit yet, which is super weird but I guess I'm not complaining.
It’s $1 over but this Timex Weekender is an incredible deal and a great first watch that looks good on everyone. Another option is the classic Casio for even less.
It is a Paddock coat which is designed to have both buttons done up.
>There are a few exceptions. The bottom button on some double-breasted jacket is buttoned. There is also a type of custom jacket called a "paddock coat," where the placement of the buttons is altered and both are buttoned. John F. Kennedy was known to wear such a jacket.
If you're taking about antiperspirant then I'm not much help. But if you're looking for a scent-free deodorant then this is what I use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M0RNOEA/
It's not particularly cheap, but works well, doesn't irritate my skin allergies like most sticks do, and is totally scent free. It's doesn't prevent sweating, but does prevent it from smelling bad.
And no discoloration of shirts of course, that's was a huge problem for me with the few sticks that don't trigger my allergy.
Link for the lazy to their best <$80 hoodie. $20 on amazon
They're women's boots (I dress pretty preppy) and there isn't a single person that I know who has not commented on it when I wear them out. I've gotten hit on by both men and women alike because of these damn boots -- I don't wear them out often anymore because they attract a TON of attention.
Unfortunately, Amazon's picture doesn't show how truly vibrant the color is.
Bryker Hyde minimalist bi-fold. Leather with a money clip in the middle. RFID to protect your information. Transparent ID slot on the outside for drivers license, etc. Had mine for two years and couldn’t be happier!
European and only 3$, you can't go wrong with it, shipping might be a bit much tho. It is a little less conventional, and may be considered to be a bit high fashion for normcore fans.
Our shirts fit fairly true to size, I'd recommend checking our size chart for the measurements, or having a look at our instagram tag for a couple of examples of people wearing them :)
Been super happy with this one off Amazon for only $50
Only complaint is that a button fell off after about a year, had the buttons reinforced. It still looks good as new with no signs of wear and is my go-to coat. It's a slimmer fit and I get compliments on it regularly.
Not necessarily clothing, but you can get some decent, minimalist watches on Ali for a few dollars. Lots of brands nowadays (e.g MVMT, Daniel Wellington, 1000 other Instagram watch brands) buy from suppliers who sell on Aliexpress/Alibaba
I'm giving you the upvotes, guy. Because coming out and showcasing your look and taking on the criticisms is not an easy thing to do. But I feel everything said so far is pretty constructive.
Ultimately, you've got some pretty decent pieces littered throughout what you've shown. The graphic tee thing is a personal choice. I like throwing on a t-shirt with imagery that reflects something I'm into, or what have you too. But they never serve use when layering like you're trying to do in some of these. I also don't like how long the laces on your sneakers seem to be in these. Maybe that's just me.
This one in particular -- My favorite of the bunch. No graphics in sight. A good tailor ought to fine tune all that bagginess in the pants and sleeves. That's the biggest thing you can take from all the suggestions I think. Also those are your nicest shoes you've displayed. The sneakers (both pair) weren't helping things.
~$10 (~$18 for a 3-pack) for surprisingly good build quality and decent looks in a big selection of colors. I have a small face so the fact that they have a 52mm option is great. Shout-out to the Wirecutter for recommending them:
Kinda off topic, but I highly suggest this to workout and strengthen your arches. When I was rehabbing for my ACL injury, the physical therapists recommended a ton of arch exercises for me which really helped with building my arch and decreasing the pain from my flat feet. They said that while orthotics help with the problem, the only way to actually treat it was through exercise. As a flat footed fellow, godspeed my friend. Hope this helps!
I like it. After checking it out on their website I went to instructables to see if I could make one myself, and sure enough this was on the front page lol.
edit: You can get 50 ft of paracord for around 6 bucks (100 ft for $9) on Amazon, so you can make a couple of them for cheap.
If you don't care about brand or warranty, you can get some decent, minimalist watches on Alibaba/Alixpress for a few dollars. Lots of brands nowadays (e.g MVMT, Daniel Wellington, 1000 other Instagram watch brands) buy from suppliers who sell on Aliexpress/Alibaba. Just make sure you find one that has a MOQ of 1
I bought something just like this on etsy the other day for pretty cheap. Here's the link. https://www.etsy.com/listing/168225556/assassins-creed-revelations-desmond?ref=favs_view_13
It seems to be a cosplay item, but looks cool stand alone. As a heads up though, I've yet to receive it and check the quality first hand. Comes in a bunch of colors as well. Hope that helps!
Yup, http://www.retailmenot.com before you buy anything online.
Good to know they have awesome phone support too, I have no idea if the jeans will fit me when they get here. Stupid vanity sizing on everything.
Schmidt's charcoal+magnesium natural deodorant. No aluminum, smells great, not greasy or wet feeling. Pretty inexpensive and easy to find at Target and most other places now
It might lean a little into dressy due to the lack of numbers, but I'm a huge fan of my Bulova 98H51. It's extremely versatile.
I wear it to work pretty much every day with a "business very-casual" getup, and it looks right at home IMO. It also fits in with semi-formal stuff, for like a chill wedding or a fancy dinner.
How much are you off by? if its a small amount, you could sew the button back on, and put on a button extender, similar to this.
If you need to add one inch, this would work, and the belt would cover it up. If you are off by 2 or more inches, I don't think think this would be a good plan.

“Fulfilled by Amazon”
Products sold by a third company (not Amazon), on the Amazon website, using Amazon infrastructure (warehouses, packing, shipping services, customer service, etc).
The process works something like this-
Create a brand. Name it after your cat or your mother’s maiden name or some shit like that. It really doesn’t matter.
Find something interesting on Alibaba (or somewhere like the Canton fair, which is basically the same thing, just in person).
Let’s say you want to sell garlic presses. You like this one.
Get a few thousand of them made, labelled as your brand.
Import them, and create a listing on Amazon
Send them in to the Amazon warehouse (s), and wait to sell them. Amazon will provide all storage/logistics services from here on out (so long as they actually sell... if they don’t, they’ll be shipped back to you, or you’ll have to pay a storage fee.)
tbh, real hiking boots (not leather vintage-style Sorel or Danner-types) are super awkward-looking for even casual fits in European cities. It's something your 50yo uncle would rock because he doesn't want to bother getting another pair of boots for traveling overseas in rainy season. Your best bet is to bring along a pair of lightweight suede loafers for dressing up, nothing expensive. Europeans in major cities tend to dress more formal & "smart" than Americans, less emphasis on sportswear/athleisure/REI-adventure gear. And if you're just doing light hiking, opt for trail runners like these Scarpa. Serious hikers don't wear leather shoes any longer, it's all about being lightweight & close to the ground.
Or, you know, buy a Carhartt t shirt for twelve bucks.
You're right to doubt the accuracy; H&M's markups are roughly 250% above the cost of materials and labor; they're actually much higher because their SG&A numbers don't include insurance, storage, and rent costs for the factories and stores.
Also, not sure what is meant by this: >that makes a $30 H&M hoodie cost about $27 in materials and labor.... at [a sweatshop] you'd have a garment that cost $10-13 to produce
It is implied that this hypothetical sweatshop is part of H&M's supply chain; a hoodie can't be both $27 of materials and labor and cost $13 to produce.
Yesterday, as part of homecoming week, we had a day where you switch clothes with a friend. So me, a 6'2" guy, switched clothes with my friend, a 5'2" girl. so here is me wearing a skirt and tights. It was actually pretty damn fun.
Instructions unclear. Bought a Submariner... oops.
I know Invicta gets a lot of crap for their Submariner "homage" and less than stellar quality control, but I wore one for over 4 years with no issue (aside from having to set the time too often). For $75 on Amazon, it's one of the best deals out there.
I don't sleep well and would at least like to look like I do. I once asked my buddy's girlfriend, who is all about skincare, how to reduce the darkness under my eyes and she got all excited and ran back with a bottle of The Ordinary Caffeine Solution to use at night, told me to use Cera Ve cleanser in the morning (I use this one, no idea if it's better or worse than the other ones) and to regularly use moisturizer.
I forget sometimes, so I do feel like my eye bags have cleared up a bit.
This. I started using a crystal deodorant and while I sweat, I don’t smell and do not get stains. This is what I use.

Yeah, it's worth noting that Marie Kondō's book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing" isn't affiliated with Goop and it's weird healthy lifestyle bullshit brand.
They just published an article about her book.
I recommend would The Millionaire Next Door.
It's about people who are "rich" by saving $40 on boots. I mean to say, it's about how ordinary people end up being millionaires by living frugally and making smart financial decisions.
Definitely Truman Boot Co. They make some amazing boots in a small shop in NE PA. And Vince is just a pleasure to deal with and talk to about bootmaking. I mean, here's their new factory. Just an awesome company.
yeah, I can see why your experience wouldn't be that great. 4 year old phone + gingerbread ain't fun. You'd probably like reddit sync more than reddit is fun.
I got the Timex Weekender from Amazon. Its actually cheaper now than when I purchased it by $3. Then I purchased a strap from LakeHouseLeathers on Etsy. The owner is a Redditor who frequently posts discount codes on /r/frugalmalefashion.
Very thick fabric, no chance of nip showing. I washed and dried them on high heat before wearing and they shrank about .5-1 inch all around, which left them perfectly slim on my 6' 185 body. Collar is thick and kinda high if you like that. Trust me on this, costco's not exactly the first place you think of for white tshirts but these things are great.
Costco Kirkland Signature Trail socks, 4 pairs for $12. If you're not a member they charge another 5% iirc
This goes up to 9 1/4.
amazon has some options too, just type in your hat size and the word 'hat'
This article is a good read if you are unaware about the fake reviews and how people try to circumvent the system. This, of course, is not anything new and has been going on for a while, way before the article was published this year.
Before, Amazon was plagued by reviews exchanged for free/heavily discounted goods and so eventually Amazon decided to banned these reviews. Well, now we have reviewers buy the item, appear as a 'verified purchase' and then get reimbursed (through Paypal or wherever) without Amazon's knowledge.
I still use Amazon (definitely not for clothes), but I'm a lot more selective. I was looking for a sturdy drying rack, better than something from Ikea/Honey-Can-Do/Target/etc and willing to pay more. Came across Cresnel and so many alarm bells told me not to move on (rusting, dent-able, unknown company with a small inventory list despite 2k reviews, etc).
I got the Amazon Basics Bomber Jacket in black last year and I've really liked it so far. Cool zipper on the arm, pocket on the inside, good elastic on the cuffs, and it's warm but not overwhelmingly so. A solid option at exactly $50, and I've received a few compliments on it
I was talking to a friend who tests technical fabrics for a big outdoor clothing company. He was describing what makes the Flyknit unique.
It's not really the material, but rather how it's manufactured. The entire upper can be constructed at one time with a machine. That's going to save Nike the resources of building the upper in multiple stages (paying for labor and material). Compare that to the multiple stages it takes to build these New Balance shoes. In theory, there are fewer resources wasted in the Nike upper because of the knit design. Of course they don't need to lower the cost - I understand that they actually raised the price.
Getting back to this shoe comparison, I do think Addidas are trying to cash in on the knitted look. But it seems funny that they have an upper with knitted sections that are still assembled together. It's easier to create a shoe that has knitted components than it is to copy to algorithms, programs and machines that Nike has.
As to what looks better, I'll leave it up to all you guys.
I got a pair on amazon for $30, they're waaaarm. It hasnt been cold enough here in boston to use it yet, i'm afraid they'd almost be too warm if you're inside... here's a link
Can I get some opinions on my messenger bag?
Bought it on Amazon almost exactly a year ago and I love this thing. It does bleed onto tan pants though, but that was a price worth paying since at the time it was only like $60. Used to get shit from my gf because she says it's "too plain".
Edit: also rock this padfolio with it for work, you could say I like leather. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07236Q2C3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'm a big fan of Stomper Joe no show socks. I've had a bunch of different brands for no show socks and these are the only ones that stay on my heel, are low enough to always be invisible, and don't bunch up.
There are plenty of attempts at bridging fashion and function. But as with most things that divergent, there are compromises that don't work well for me.
In another type of compromise, that's how we end up with this abomination
That is the logic of scam artists and porn producers. The nightmare of every working artist.
"It will be good for your career." "No pay but it's great exposure" "We may not have given you any credit but you should just be happy we used your work" "he was doing him a favor by giving him this exposure"
Tartan vintage shirt, Dior Homme creepers and sterling silver bangles for today. I hope you like it, also here's my instagram for my previous fits.
You're overreaching so hard it's almost embarrassing. A plantation is a large farm that grows crops for export out of the local area. That's it. There are "plantations" all around the world and they existed far before the south was populated by white people. There is nothing inherently racist about the word or idea of a plantation. Hell the word goes back to at least the early 1500s
Quit looking for shit to be offended over.
Hijacking this, but I'm acne prone and I hate the thick clogged feeling or oily sheen of most sunscreens. I've been using this- https://smile.amazon.com/Biore-Aquaric-Water-Wreath-Essence/dp/B075BGQWZX/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1542149241&sr=8-5&keywords=biore+uv
It's insanely popular in Asia, you don't feel it on your skin and it hasn't affected my acne. It uses the asian SPF scale and exceeds SPF 50.
I got this and to be honest, it's really not that bad especially for the price!
I put it inside of a duvet cover (of course) and this paired with a topsheet on my bed keeps me warm throughout the winter here. It doesn't get used during the summer though because if I have it on top of me I turn into a sweaty mess.
Let me see what I can pull up for good quality watches with a minimal style.
Here's an Orient Bambino V3, you can find it in different color faces.
Here's a Timex Weekender Farfield, there are also different faces for this.
Or you could just cop a Seiko Spirit "Blue Spark" SCVS013.
What is your current style?
If you are not slim with a slight fit build, you will not fill this jacket out well. They come very untailored (the jacket in the picture is pinned back like clothing on a store mannequin), so you would have to dish out the money to tailor it.
This isn't a t-shirt kind of jacket, either. You will need to wear it with at LEAST a well fitting collared shirt. A tie would be preferable with this.
Finally, if you aren't wearing nice jeans/pants, you will look like garbage in this jacket. It is SLIM fit, which means baggy lightwash Wranglers from Walmart are not going to mesh well. You should be wearing 511's or 514's at the least, preferably higher priced selvedge jeans. Also consider producer pants from Express.
With all that being said, this is the exact jacket you are looking for. Mind my advice, however. Return shipping to South Korea is going to be about the same as the price of the jacket. You will lose money, no matter what, if you do not like the fit/style of this jacket.
My personal opinion is very high, at least for the old school stuff. Historically (i.e. from the 60's-70's and maybe further), Braun was the king of industrial design, due to their lead designer Dieter Rams. Apple's Jonathan Ives has picked up Rams' torch and it's very evident in all of their minimalist/functional designs.
Check this comparison. And here's a short documentary on Rams.
Then you haven't been to SE Asia. You can get it for as low as $10/m on Alibaba, and that's the export price.
A bespoke suit is about 4m, so $40 cost for cloth.
If you need to buy 5-6 suits for work, it's actually worth the plane ticket to fly to fly to Shanghai to get the bespoke suits. You just need to be there for the week it takes them to make it, because I wouldn't trust them to ship.
If you get a NATO style strap, it's incredibly easy and in my opinion, looks a lot better. Takes about 15 seconds.
Here is mine.
I went with this one myself: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0716YQMNM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_BbBbEbVAQ1WW2
Nice having the piece of mind that no one is going to pickpocket me since the zipper is not easily accessible. Get compliments on it too.
It's hard to call a $51 Invicta overpriced when it compares against a $45 Casio. Source: I own the casio and really like it, but I also own a very similar Invicta.
They're both cheap watches that need to have a new band, but they have both served me well for 7 years in the case of the Invicta, and 2 years in the case of the Casio. What more do you expect from a cheap watch? Neither of them are watch snob watches like my Citizen Solar, Seiko Chronographs (7t62 and 7t32), Orient Mako, 1972 pulsar, 1977 Citizen Bullhead, or Vostok Diver, but they don't need to be, they just need to be reliable beaters, because that's how they are priced.

The 6" version works best for me. Not the needle stitched nor the separate pouch. This punch fits the most comfortable without the excess fabric of the other ones.
Way better than Ex Official and Uniqlo Airism at a fraction of the price.
Going two years strong
